Cardinal Del Val’s Defense of Newman

cardinal-del-valBlessed John Henry Newman’s liturgical memorial is celebrated liturgically on October 9. For this occasion Stephen Bullivant, Senior Lecturer in Theology and Ethics at St Mary’s University, Twickenham, posted a short piece in the Catholic Herald about how Cardinal Merry del Val, the Secretary of State for Pope Pius X, defended Newman from George Tyrrell’s attempt (at the start of the 20th c.) to claim Newman’s support for his beliefs about revelation and the development of dogma.
